A GREAT MEETING.
Continued from 6th page.
to get through. He said that the tariff
was simply a matter of business and
though many people looked upon it as
something very intricate, it was
simple as the multiplication table when
it was sifted down. '-Many people have
told me that they did not understand the
tariff atd that they never saw anyone
that did end they looked me in the face
When they said it."
Coald be Learned in Five Minutes.
He contended, however, that this was
not true and that by a little pains the
true foundation and workings of a tariff
system could be "earned in five minutes.
In the first piece the speaker said that
one of the primary principles of the
democratic purtj was to allow every man
who had anything to sell to take it to
the market where he could ect the most
for it tlis the constitution of this coun
try guarantees to every man, and sec
ondly, democracy grants the right to buy
in that maiket where he can get the most
for bis money. They f.lso agree that the
government should levy a sufficient
amount to support itself, but there it
must stop. The republican idea was dia
metrically opposite not to allow the
citizen to purchase where he saw fit, for
if he did so it would not be protection to
home industries, as they call it.
Protection Protects Who?
This being the case, continued Mr.
Springer, allows the manufacturer here
to fix the price, for unless it does there is
no protectioa. This enables the hcnn
manufacturer to raise the prices on do
mestic i roduct? so that he can extort ex
travagant profi's from the consumer.
When the MeKinley bill was passed and
the democrats all over the country said
that prices were being raised, the repub
licans said they were lying, but the ladies
were the first to find it out and they told
their husbands and brothers and you saw
the result two years ago by the rousing
majority sent to congress. The speaker
then corrected a few statements made by
F X. Schoonmaker in his recent speech
there, in which Le told the people how a
higher tariff made lower . prices and a
lower tariff made higher prices. He next
exposed the fallacy cf the foreigner-pay
ing-the-tax rruments, and spoke
of the MeKinley statements at
the republican convention, in 'which he
said that a way bad been discovered of
imposing the expenses of the government
on the foreigners. "What a pretty senti
ment," said the speaker. "Suppose for a
moment such a thing were possible;
would you be in favor of it? ' Cries of
no! noil Think of it, be con
tinued, the grandest and wealthiest
country on the globe passing the hat
among the pauper laborers of Europe to
Supporting the Thrones of Europe.
"But this is not all. Supposing that it
could be operated successful j T Two
could play at the same game, end where
would we be when it came to exportation
if we had to support the royal splendor
of the thrones of Europe? When goods
are sold here in Moline and put abourd
the cars you do not know nor care where
they are going. It is the same wilU the
man in Euiope; he pays nothing toward
the importation here. J.V.Farwell & Co.,
Marshall Field & Co. and James H. Walker
& Co. of Chicago import 90 per cent cf
the1 goods for Illinois and the entire
northwest, and either of them cfter hav
ing their agent in Europe purchase an
Invoice of goods have their bookkeeper
figure the cost of that agent abroad, the
freights and duties and add it to the cost
of the goods to which is aleo added their
own per cent of the profit, all of which
is included in the price they sell them at
and there is absolutely no other way to
figure it. Take for instance the ship
ment of pearl buttons imported by Far
well & Co. a short time ago tbatjeost them
inEuropc $ 1,400 and the duty on which
was f 3.000. Suppose i.Fa well had said
'I won't make the consumer pay the tariff
but will stand it mjstlf,' how long would
it be before Mr. Farwell who is now a 20
mUlionaire would be a 20 million-pauper.
No one could do business that way.''
Taxing the Tollers to Make Millionaire.
He roundly denounced a system of
taxation that would tax the toiling
masses to make millionaires of a few.
Mr. Springer then spoke of the tariff
schedule, in which Moline, as well as
other manufacturers used iron
taxed 52 per cent, and wood taxed 20
per cent, adding that if given the raw
material free they can put their products
on the sarket at least 83 per cent cheap
er tta at present. "Tee; but would theyT"
shouted a voice in the aud nee. "If they
didn't somebody would start a factory
who would," retorted Mr. Springer, 'and
the more factories the greater demand for
labor and conef qoently the better for
you," and bis reply was interrupted by
tumultous cheering. The Speaker then
quoted from President Harriton's letter
of acceptance, in relation to his reference
to manufacturers not sharing with their
employes, and added that be would
sooner see that order of things reveised
and the workingman given the chance to
ahare with bis employer, sayiogthat there
would . be, lees millionaires and more
workibgmen with comfortable homes,
fewer Carnegie s and more men who could
aff ord to send well dressed children to
pchool and take a few days off occasion
ally for a benefit to shattered health.
Protects the Carneffies.
"Protection protects Mr. Carnegie and
has enabled him to amass his millions,
but do you think any man could honest
ly earn $30,000,000 or $40,000,000 In a
comparatively few years?" He spoke at
some length on the condition of the men
at Homestead and warned all laboring
organizations to stand firm ss the present
lockout was an attempt to throttle the
organized labor of the country. The
question of a tax on woolen goods was
ably bandied by Mr. Springer, and this,
together with a thorough discussion of
the sugar tax, closed his address.
He had the closest attention of the vast
audience during his entire speech, and
bis able and forcible manner of present
ing an argument carried conviction to Lis
Judge Walter I. Hayes of Clinton, who
represents the Diva nport district was
next introduced and for half an hour he
laid bare the skeleton of a protective tar
iff. His remarks like those of the pro
ceeding speaker were enthusiastically re
ceived and made a lasticg impression.
